Entry Requirements.
None required.

Pre Learning is essential to pass this course.

Providing a participant is willing to apply themselves and complete the five day FREC 3 and guided learning hours, they should be able to obtain a pass. However, to gain the most from the course, some previous knowledge by attending a first aid course is desirable. Participants need to be at least 17 years old to attend the FREC 3. Due to the assessments adequate numeracy and literature skills are needed to obtain a pass.


Continuous assessment is applied through the course. In addition to this, there are three multi-choice question papers and 15 practical assessments.

The FREC Level 3 can be followed by FREC 4, FREC 5 and 6, providing entry requirements are met.  This progressive suite of pre-hospital care qualifications is part of an HCPC approved programme to enable a learner to become a Paramedic.
